Helen Peralta def. Cheyanne Vlismas via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28).

Commentators Julie Kedzie and TJ De Santis point out bad blood between the two in the build-up to this fight, moreso on the side of Vlismas. Round one was close with both ladies looking coposed. Early in round two, Peralta dropped Vlismas with a beautiful left hand! Cheyanne recovered well and managed to get back to her feet but Peralta keeps the pressure on. Round three and both fighters look fresh. Helen lands a nice elbow down the middle but Vlismas, who is mentored by Miesha Tate, returns fire with a nice combination that has Peralta backing up for the first time. She turns up the pace but it is likely too late as the bell sounds.

Macy Chiasson def. Allison Schmidt via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).

Former Invicta featherweight champ Megan Anderson joins the commentary team for this 145-pound bout! Macy Chiasson has a huge reach and height advantage in this fight. In the first round, the gameplans are clear in this fight– Chiasson wants the distance and Schmidt wants to clinch. In the third round, both fighters are showing damage. Chiasson cracks Schmidt with a left hand straight down the middle, dropping Schmidt! Great recovery by Schmidt who is able to get back to her feet against the cage. The bell sounds with Macy pressing Schmidt against the fence.

Lisa Spangler def. Sarah Kleczka via unaimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

Interesting bantamweight match-up here– 22-year-old “The Strangler” Spangler is making her pro-debut versus Sarah “Chucky” Kleczka who’s taking the fight on a little over a week’s notice, just one week out from her last appearance, to fill in for an injured Yaya Rincon. Round one saw both fighters feel each other out with both fighters having their moments. Spangler is landing her combinations more fludily now, rocking Kleczka a few times, though, Kleczka has landed her own shots that has some slight swelling on the eye of Lisa. Kleczka shoots in for a double leg and is punished by Spangler for it! Third round and Kleczka throws up a nice high kick. Spangler returns with a leg kick that hurts Kleczka. Kleczka is hurt– she’s limping and appears to not be putting pressure on her left leg. The fight ends at the buzzer with both fighters winging bombs at each other.

Liz Tracy def. Cheri Muraski via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27).

Both ladies are looking to bounce back from razor-thin split-decision losses in thier last Invicta outings. Some really fun grappling exchanges in the first round. Muraski had some great defense but it was Tracy who delegated the pace of the first round and likely scored a 10-9. Round two was more of the same, Liz poured it on and layed several quality strikes. Meraski looking tired in the third. She was able to secure a nice double leg but the “Titan” was quick to her feet. All three rounds will likely go toward Tracy.

Julia Avila vs Marciea Allen def. Julia Avila via TKO (doctor stoppage – injury: broken finger).

Exciting bantamweight action up next! Big pops from the crowd for both the “Black Widow” and “Raging Panda”.  A kick from Allen…and suddenly the ref stops the fight. Julia’s finger has been dislocated as a result of that kick. The bone is showing and the doctors call the fight off. Props to the referee for catching the injury before any further damage was done.

Pearl Gonzalez def. Barbara Acioly via first-round submission (arm bar).

Big fight here! Former UFC strawweight Pearl Gonzaelz making her sophomore Invicta FC appearance (one month out from her debut) opposite Brazil’s Barbara Acioly. Lots of friends and family in the crowd for Gonzalez who receives a big pop from the crowd! PG is fighting at flyweight for the first time in Invicta. Both throwing nice shots early, Pearl hits a nice double leg and works from half guard. Gonzalez looks to jump to an armbar, however, Acioly rolls with it. Pearl locks up a triangle, slams some nasty elbows to the head of Barbara that open up a cut, and transitions to an arm bar and gets the tap! Domination!

Pannie Kianzaid def. Bianca Daimoni via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).

A bantamweight co-main and main tonight as “Bonzai” will look to snap a three-fight skid and spoil the debut of Brazilian newcomer Daimoni. Pannie starts off with some fast hands. Both ladies look contempt to brawl to begin. Bianca started the second round with a nice overhand right. Kianzaid clinches and recomposes before they seperate and trade. Bianca has some stiff shots but it is Pannie who is landing first and getting the better of these exchanges. Pannie landed a beautiful left hook that knocked Daimoni down, however, the Brazilian recvored well. This was a great showing from Kianzaid– her foot and head movement was excellent and her striking looked precise and powerful.

Sarah Kaufman def. Katharina Lehner via third-round submission (rear-naked choke)

The (vacant) title is on the line! Canada meets Germany as WMMA pioneer Sarah Kaufman takes on rising prospect Katharina Lehner! As mentioned by Julie Kedzie, Lehner resembles a young Kaufman. A furious pace set early with both ladies landing some quality shots. An all-out brawl in the first round– Kaufman’s incorporating a little more kicks to change the rythym. A little over midway through the second round Kaufman takes the floor to the ground from the clinch. Kaufman gets on top and locks in an arm triangle! It looks tight– Lehner is struggling but she manages to escape! The fight is back to the feet and they are back to trading. Very impressive durability from Lehner to survive that! Third round and both ladies are content to brawl. Kaufman takes the fight to the floor once more, Katharina looks to stand up but gives up her back– Sarah jumps on her and secures a deep RNC, forcing the tap!
